Sofa, Looking for TogoPodcast Prime
New York I’m back ! I’m going through the Lower East Side to get to the Forward Building, close to Chinatown. In this district, we come across all the communities that make Manhattan such a rich place. Felix Burrichter, the founder and editor of Pin-Up Magazine, has settled at the top of this historic building. On his desk, he shows us a mosaic of colourful photos with Togos a-go go!
In this final episode, we then head north to Chelsea to go to Gagosian, a famous art gallery. Antoine Roset is giving a conference there and I’m seizing this opportunity to walk around with my mic and recorder on… In Paris, French writer Chloé Delaume depicts the Togo as a fictional character.
‘Sofa, Looking for Togo’ is an adventure and an investigation to try to understand this worldwide success a little better. How did this sofa become such an iconic, inescapable piece of design? Why does everyone want it? What’s its secret? My name is Aurélie Sfez, I’m a journalist and I make documentaries. Come with me on a journey to look for Togo and we’ll see where it leads…
